Equipment Used
This cruise will be dedicated to collecting hydrocasts over a section
of the shelf adjacent to and north of Point Conception, CA. The intention is
to better define the extent and location of natural hydrocarbon seeps. We will
be measuring dissolved gases in the water column in real time.
